Property description

Located a short walk from the center of Woodstock, NY, the Blue Pearl is a very private, quiet, comfortable, elegant and very romantic cottage facing a private gorgeous flower garden! It is owned and decorated by an artist and is filled with original art work, unique and exotic details and furniture. The Blue Pearl offers 900sq ft of luxury, with 2 queen size beds, designer bedding, beautiful bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and everything you need to cook a meal with (except for the food) a private bedroom with very comfortable queen size bed, chandelier, skylight and gorgeous draperies. * Enjoy the town and the surroundings or stay home and relax on your sultan-style sofa, basking in the sunlight streaming through the 3 skylights 20 feet overhead! The living room is huge but cozy with Tuscan colors and plush oriental rugs, a sitting area with couch, comfy chair and a fire place, a large desk and library area, a dining area with a round table and 4 chairs and the second very comfortable and exotic bed. The lighting is gorgeous throughout the cottage and all on dimmers. In the summer, have your meals in the garden over looking the Catskills Mountains, or lounge on the long chairs in the sunny meadow, surrounded by flowers and tall grasses, and snuggle under the stars at night by a blazing fire in the fire pit and glowing torches. In the winter, ski the nearby Catskills slopes, or cozy up to a fire in the gas-fueled heat stove while admiring the mountain view. There are additional electric baseboard heaters with thermostat in bedroom and bathroom so you'll be nice and cozy in the cooler months! The Blue Pearl is truly a hidden gem and oasis, a place former guests have described as a ' work of art' and was described in a national travel magazine as 'the lodging equivalent of a consciousness raising that inspires renewal of mind, body and spirit'

*There is a blackout blind for the skylight in the bedroom and we have a third deluxe air bed for larger families.
Many fun things to do in Woodstock in the winter. Just a half hour from great skiing at Hunter Mountain and Bellayre!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: I was born in Paris, France. From there I moved to Rome for 4 years then to New York City where I lived for 25 years in the East Village. I’ve also traveled quite a bit to exotic places: Nepal, India, Algeria, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Jamaica, Mexico, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Sicily, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, Laos, Vietnam, Turkey, Bali. I‘ve been all around the world, but I’ve chosen to live in Woodstock, for its beauty, tranquility, and community.

Why Woodstock, NY, USA:
The history of the land upon which it is built is a history rich with art, music, creativity, and self-expression. The previous owners were both artists. And before them, the property was owned by the legendary Ruth Ingalls, a grand dame who turned it into a Creative Arts camp – a dynamic place where Bob Dylan and many other locals sent their children to learn, grow, and experience. The cottage used to be the bunk beds for girls. Jimi Hendrix once lived across the street. So did Jimmy Cobb, the legendary drummer who played with Miles Davis, George Bellows, the great American painter lived on the next block. And today, the tradition continues. Within a five-minute drive are the homes and studios of more than 40 artists – many of whom will be happy to show you their work (if we give them just a bit of notice).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On a quiet dead end lane just 12 minutes walk from cappuccino, restaurants and the center of town. Amazing gardens, mountain views, lawns, privacy. Original artwork on every wall. Wireless internet. A great vacation place, a long retreat heaven! A fun family home away from home! Come and experience it, you will want to move there! ....and you may!
